Assessment of safety, efficacy, and dosimetry of a novel 18-kDa translocator protein ligand, [11C]CB184, in healthy human volunteers

Background N,N-di-n-propyl-2-[2-(4-[11C]methoxyphenyl)-6,8-dichloroimidazol[1,2-a]pyridine-3-yl]acetamide ([11C]CB184) is a novel selective radioligand for the 18-kD translocator protein (TSPO), which is upregulated in activated microglia in the brain, and may be useful in positron emission tomography (PET). We examined the safety, radiation dosimetry, and initial brain imaging...

Allergin-1 inhibits TLR2-mediated mast cell activation and suppresses dermatitis

TLR2 recognizes cell wall components of Staphylococcus aureus, which colonizes >90% of atopic eczematous skin lesions. The regulatory mechanisms of TLR2 signaling in the skin remain unclear. Allergin-1, an inhibitory immunoglobulin-like receptor containing an ITIM, is expressed on mast cells (MCs) and inhibits IgE-mediated anaphylaxis in mice. Here, we show that Allergin-1...
